Netflix spy-thriller series Queen Sono starring Pearl Thusi to debut in 2020

Streaming giant Netflix recently announced that the spy-thriller series will premiere in 2020.

The series which has ‘Quantico’ star Pearl Thusi as the lead actress, will premiere on February 28th next year to 190 countries across the world.

A few months ago, The Sauce reported that the production for Netflix’s first African original series Queen Sono was well underway.

Written and created by seasoned comedian Kagiso Lediga, who also had a hand in the largely successful film Matwetwe earlier this year, Queen Sono sees Thusi playing the role of a kick-ass yet unconventional spy who is devoted to protecting the people of Africa. However, during one of her dangerous assignments, she unknowingly uncovers shocking details about her own mother’s death which subsequently leads her on a mission to uncover the truth.

Speaking about Thusi’s role in the upcoming series, Netflix’s Vice President of International Originals Erik Barmack said, “Taking talent like this and telling stories to the rest of the world puts Pearl in the same category as other strong female characters like Claire Underwood in ‘House of Cards’ and Jessica Jones.

The series was shot in 37 different locations across Africa including South Africa, Kenya, Zanzibar and Lagos. Fans can expect the dialogue to be diverse with a number of South Africa’s eleven official languages as well as French and even Russian.

The all-African cast and crew also include Vuyo Dabula, Enhle Mbali, Loyiso Madinga, Abigail Kubeka, Khathu Ramabulana and several other talented performers.
